The Municipality of Anchorage has started a new service to help senior citizens safely get groceries.
Seniors and those with disabilities can arrange to have groceries, pet supplies, and essential household items picked up using AnchorRIDES buses.
The new grocery delivery service is free for those age 60 and over. Other eligible AnchorRIDES riders can take advantage of the service for a small fee of either $3.50 or $5.50 depending on where they live.
To participate, customers must be eligible and enrolled in the AnchorRIDES program. To determine eligibility or to enroll, contact the AnchorRIDES Eligibility Office at 907.343.6543, Option #2.
Participating stores include Carrs, Fred Meyer, Target, Walmart, Petco, Pet Smart, and Pet Zoo.
